As we seek new opportunities and educational experiences for our students, we look to OS alumni as a valuable resource. Below are some ways for you to contribute to the Organizational Studies Program.
Work opportunities: Hands-on experience is desired by most OS students because it allows them to combine their education with real world experience. You can assist by providing information on internships and full-time opportunities offered by your organization. Contact the Student Services Coordinator with information about internship or full-time opportunities.
We also host companies who would like to recruit OS students. Companies such as Deloitte, Bloomberg, and others have come to Organizational Studies to recruit for both internship opportunities and full-time opportunities. Companies interested in recruiting OS students can contact the OS Program Assistant to set up information sessions or interview days.
OS Career Exploration and Prep Series: Regularly on Friday afternoons OS hosts this series that helps our students explore various careers by speaking with alumni in fields such as HR, marketing, consulting, education, the environment, finance, nonprofits, etc. Alumni either join us in person or virtually via Google Hangout to share information about their career trajectories, what a day in their working life looks like, and general job hunt tips.
Individual mentoring: Students have a strong interest in speaking with alumni one-on-one about careers and about the path taken to reach job goals. You can be a valuable resource by mentoring a student via email, phone or in-person meetings, as schedules allow. Simply contact our Program Assistant to be added to our database accessible only to OS students.
Mock interviews, resume reviews, and job shadowing: These new career programming streams will be piloted starting in Fall 2014. If you have time to assist students with the job application process or if you believe you can host a student to shadow you in your organization for a day, please contact the Key Administrator to let her know about your interest.
If you have an interest in any of these options, please contact the Student Services Coordinator.
Also, let OS know what you have been up to since graduation! Take our OS Alumni Survey to give us the most up-to-date information.
